OKAY, First things first. You need to get away from anything you could use to hurt yourself. Please. Go sit and watch tv with family/friends and just be in someone's company. Please.

Secondly, you do NOT want to do this to yourself. It may seem like your only option but it's not. Please, talk, it'll help. You're in pain as it is, cutting will only make the pain worse on yourself. Please, don't cut. Just get away from your blades or whatever you have. You don't need this.

Please, feel free to VM or PM me, if you need someone to listen

Hey there.

I am really sorry that you're feeling this way and it's led yourself to hurting yourself this way. You don't deserve to be going through this.

Firstly, if you have cut to deep then I really want to encourage you to go straight to hospital now so you can get the medical treatment you need. If its not bleeding to much make sure you put pressure on the wound. But please go to hospital if it is bad.

What ever happens with the physical side with your self harm, if you are feeling suicidal and don't feel safe I also think you need to go to hospital or ring someone and ask them to come to you because you don't feel safe on your own. Your safety is really important. I know its scary but you don't have to be alone in this and people can help you.

Please try and get some help. You ARE worth so much more than this.

Stay strong,

Hi sweetie,
Okay, like the above posts have mentioned, you need to stay away from anything you can use to hurt yourself.

If you feel a horrible urge, and it doesn't go away, you really need to get yourself into therapy, or a counselor. Try to distract yourself from the fact that you want to SH. You must really be hurting hun, and I'm so sorry you are!

If you need to talk, I'm always around, please, don't hesitate to pm/vm me! Take care of yourself! <3

Oh dear. It is going to be alright Megan. I have been a really bad self harmer myself. I want to help you through this. We all want to help you through this. The first step, is to throw away your blades. You have to let them go. As long as the blades are gone, you should be fine. Second, you have to find a distraction for yourself. You can have as many distractions as you need. If you need to talk, we are here to talk. If you need things to sort of take your mind off of it, such as holding ice cubes, or writing or drawing, putting bands around your wrist, you can feel free to do so. We want to make sure we can try everything possible to get you through this. It's going to be fine. Nobody here wants you to harm yourself. We love you.

Hate to echo everybody else here, but if you feel you're going to hurt yourself, you should probably tell someone you can trust, whether a family member, a friend, a neighbour, or whoever.

Also, if you have not taken a look at it, I suggest you glance at the Alternatives to Self-Harm Thread for some ideas on better ways to cope/keep yourself occupied.

If you absolutely feel like you're a danger to yourself (i.e. going to hurt yourself really bad, or feeling suicidal), then I suggest you go to the Emergency Room at your local hospital, and they will be able to help you out.

Overall, Dare to be yourself.

Hey Beautiful,
Im so sorry that you are feeling this way. Noone deserves to feel like this. I want you to know that life gives us up and downs, and no matter what you can make it through.

I recommend you tell someone you trust, a family member, a teacher, your friends. If you feel like you dont want to tell anyone, i highly recommend booking an appointment with your local doctor. Its confidential and they dont tell anyone without your permission .

Having distractions is also the best thing , If you have the urge to cut,
sit down in a quiet spot and just breath in and out, forgot about everything and just breath.
you can also listen to music or anything that helps you relax.

I hope everything goes well and remember people love you.x
